Roach Conveyor Rollers allow a gravity conveyor to move the load without utilizing motor power sources, usually down an incline or through a person pushing the load along a flat conveyor. Rollers on a powered conveyor are driven by motors and drives. Rollers for gravity and power applications come with an outside diameter from 1" to 3.5", wall from 7 gauges to 18 gauge, and made from either galvanized, aluminum, or steel. Rollers set high in frame for long lasting durability and optimal performance.
Gravity Rollers are used on conveyor lines in warehouses, shipping areas and assembly areas. Gravity Rollers will convey medium duty loads that have firm flat bottoms such as cartons, totes, skids and drums. Powered Rollers smoothly move material, components and packages for industrial applications. Powered Rollers move complex or flat bottom packages or components designed for medium to heavy duty applications in warehouses and factories.
